In memory of the victims of August 14, 19XX – Japan, Indonesia and Turkey

“In memory of” will highlight deadly earthquakes of the past.
People have forgotten a lot of these human tragedies.
We @ Earthquake Report are hopeful that people in these countries and cities will learn from their history and will make sure that they are building Earthquake Proof houses and that they know what to do when the earth will be shaking again.

Ocean near Guam – M 7.2 – Very powerful seaquake

Earthquake Report comment :
Most important is the Tsunami risk as the earthquake occurred 348 km from Guam.
Here is the first NOAA report :

NO DESTRUCTIVE WIDESPREAD TSUNAMI THREAT EXISTS BASED ON
 HISTORICAL EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI DATA.

 HOWEVER - EARTHQUAKES OF THIS SIZE SOMETIMES GENERATE LOCAL
 TSUNAMIS THAT CAN BE DESTRUCTIVE ALONG COASTS LOCATED WITHIN
 A HUNDRED KILOMETERS OF THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. AUTHORITIES
 IN THE REGION OF THE EPICENTER SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS
 POSSIBILITY AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION.

Based on the details we have at present, the only risk will be a tsunami risk with is declined by both NOAA and GDACS
According to the USGS calculation models, NO people have been shaken by this seaquake.
NO people are living within a radius of 200 km from the epicenter
First aftershocks are occurring. With an earthquake of this Magnitude, there will be a lot of aftershocks the following days and even weeks.

Most important Earthquake Data:
Saturday, August 14, 2010 at 07:19:36 AM at epicenter
Depth (Hypocenter) : 20 km
Geo-location(s) :
348 km (216 miles) WSW (252°) from HAGATNA, Guam

Earthquakes list August 13, 2010

Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
This earthquake list covers minor and major earthquakes  in the world.
If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page.
For your comfort, we will provide in most cases Google Satellite Map links to give you an idea where the earthquake struck, which terrain it happened and if villages or cities are located in the immediate vicinity.
The page is regularly updated to add new quakes.
Minor earthquakes are earthquakes without or with little damage risk.  In most cases these earthquakes have a Magnitude smaller than M 5.0 OR earthquakes with an hypocenter (depth) of more than 100 km OR earthquakes up to M 5.9 with an epicenter far away from populated areas.
The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
